“Charlottesville:  Our Streets”

The Alexandria Film Festival is hosting a cost-free screening on Sunday April 8 at 2:00 pm at the Beatley Central Library.  

When screened at the Virginia Film Festival in November, the film sold out with lines around the block. Charlottesville: Our Streets” is a stark look at the devastating events that transpired in August last year. A team of local filmmakers, photographers, and journalists has compiled footage and stills from over 30 cameras, with 20 interviews from first-person witnesses from the fateful Unite The Right rally of August 12th. The country watched as white supremacists’ demonstrations violently escalated, resulting in multiple injuries and the death of Heather Heyer. This feature documentary is an objective observation how the events unfolded, delivering a stark and sometimes brutal telling of individual truths from the perspectives of the people who were there.  Please join the Alexandria Film Festival in welcoming filmmaker Jackson Landers for discussion following the screening.
